A better title might be Platinum Streak, considering the talent collected here — we’re talking hip-hop heavies like Ja Rule and Foxy Brown, soul superstars Kelly Price and Keith Sweat, and slick studio Svengalis Rodney Jerkins and Swizz Beatz. Yet other than Jay-Z’s maddeningly infectious, inventive ”Girl’s Best Friend,” Blue Streak goes blue in the face trying to please every audience — a little Dirty South bass bounce here, a little East Coast rap ruckus there — resulting in a serious case of Urbanus soundtrackus genericus.
